save your money, use the demos, and gets some lessons to at least teach you to release the club properly

its true, Ive been playing around 8 years and my game is finally now to the ability where I feel confident. Occasionally Ill shank a drive but if I hit every shot perfect, id be on tour. The short game is the most important part, the chipping inside 100yds and the putting, you could mishit a drive get to the green 1 off regulation and still be able to chip in or put in for par if your short game is good. On the days that your not taking lessons Id go to the range and practice chipping and putting, if possible....good luck and at times its going to be the must frustrating thing you have ever done, I told myself Im quitting probably around 20 times but I didnt, once you can play and start to enjoy it, its the best feeling in the world, GOOD LUCK!

check out Second Swing, great company, they have used clubs that are like new and they have a great warranty with every club you buy. I've bought a lot of clubs from them. Aside from that you can pick up just about any club for your first set and you'll do fine...enjoy yourself and don't take it too seriously.

I recommend going into your local golf shop that has a variety of clubs. Since you're in california, I'm sure you guys have a golfsmith down in socal. Go there and get fitted for the proper clubs. Most likely since you're a beginner you should definitely look into cavity back irons. In my opinion callaway makes some very good clubs for beginners that can be used for better players as well. It's also pleasing to the eye. This is just my opinion, but the club has to look good in my eyes for me to consider it unless the club would drastically improve my game, which no club will.

There's plenty to choose from so I'd try out what clubs you are interested in, then go to either www.tgw.com or www.golfgalaxy.com, or even www.golfdiscount.com to actually purchase the clubs to save on tax. Shipping will be free. Or you can look for the clubs you want on ebay AFTER deciding at the store which ones fit you best. It's going to be a little difficult to get a complete set for $300 for decent clubs. I wouldn't settle for knock off brands b/c clubs DO make a difference. If you're gonna do it, do it right. Good luck and pm me if you have other questions. I'm sure there's a lot of other people out here that will be willing to help you out.

Good point.

Putting is one of those things, you either have it from the beginning or have to work your ass off to learn how to.
